Tugboats move quite the variety of materials around the boro on barges.  The brand spanking new J. Arnold Witte here moves Delaware Bay, a bucket dredge.  Doris Moran moves containers around the boro much quicker than trucks can. I had to throw this in  . . . a late 1950s Chevy pickup was moving a […]

Here are some posts that predate this one:  an uncovered cigarette boat in 2008, a shrink-wrapped yacht in 2009, a pilothouse ketch in 2017, Hornblower Hybrid leaving town last year, and there must be more . . .  See it up suspended there after coming off the ship? The “cradle” is likely a 40′ flat […]

Usually the cargo is invisible, but that’s not always true.  I hadn’t even noticed the cargo when I took this photo of Kimberly Turecamo leaning into the rust streaked Maersk container ship.

Here are previous cargoes posts, but today I could have called this fog as well.  But what is it . . . a happy marina? Oh . . . Hornblower Hybrid , a misnomer, and Amarula Sun, a sport fish . . . It’s a Big Lift vessel with a marina load on its deck.   […]

When Sea Coast towed a barge through the boro the other day, Tony A snapped the next two photos and shared them with me.  And I’m very grateful he did. You recognize the cargo on this deck barge?  That’s Kings Point in the background. And from Norman Brouwer, here are some closer up shots he […]

It’s mid afternoon, and what’s this?  In past years, I’ve posted photos discharging coal in the harbor, loading scrap away from the dock, and lightering salt. Midmorning earlier I’d seen Frances slinging a scow out of Duraport, but I had  no clue where she was headed. Until some hours later.  Frances here delivers an empty […]

Here are previous posts in this series. Floragracht hurries upstream just north of Montreal with a mixed cargo on its deck.  The sail might be re-named Wet Autumn Dream. All photos by Will Van Dorp.

Cargo I’ll define as “goods transported for profit.”  Click here to see the range of cargoes posts. So what’s this?  That’s what I wondered when I first glimpsed it yesterday, over by the Sandy Hook Pilots’ pier. I got no confirmation, but there’s no mistaking what this is.  And there was this tugster post involving […]

Vessel Parts Cargoes

This post follows up on Whatzit 36 . . . here. Yup, it’s more parts for “the vessel.” The two photos above come from Tony Acabono.  The rest come from Will Van Dorp. Here Emily Ann moves some parts on Witte 1402 westbound, which confused me until I understood the routes.   So the parts […]

More than a week ago, these tanks entered the Erie Canal system at lock E-2 in Waterford.  Sunday afternoon they tied up for the night in Lyons below E-27.  Let’s call the first nine photos here Batch 1.   This morning early, they made their way through E-27 and then on to E-28A. Here’s a view […]
